The exhibition on the work by Ed van der Elsken at the Bárbara de Braganza Hall in Madrid is the largest retrospective in Spain on the photographic and cinematographic work by the author (Amsterdam, 1925 – Edam, 1990), who was one of the most relevant personalities in the artistic world in the second half of the 20th Century in the Netherlands.

The show features a large selection of some of his most iconic photographs, as well as his books, and excerpts from his films and slide shows created from his numerous color photographs. In addition, sketches and dummies for some of his works, personal documents, letters and notes shed new light on his working methods and personality.
